Let's talk about Brakes

Or should I say Breaks!

That B.O.A.T. acronym is right on the money, pun intended.

What's the general consensus on Disc vs. Drum trailer brakes for in a saltwater application?

It seems to me the disc version would be easier to work on and more likely to hold up because you can wash them down. The more I read and talk to people about drums the more I lean towards discs. I have those wash out tubes on the ez-loader but the brakes are shot. Even if you wash it down after every trip how many wash out the drums after dumping the boat in the water. Saltwater sitting in the drum baking in the sun all day, I don't even want to think about the rate of rust.

So let's here about your trailer experiences.

Look for Jim rewires his trailer in future post.
